Pulp Buddhism on the difference between the 16th Karmapa in 1979 and how OTD is today

Picture of Ogyen Trinley Dorje as a child being trafficked by the Chinese as Rangjung Rikpe Dorje at Tsurphu Monastery in Occupied Tibet

Well, both the Bears and the Cubs lost yesterday which makes this morning all the more Monday-like than usual for the Players.

“Clearly what Rangjung Rikpe Dorje was about in 1979 was one thing.”

Jonathan continues.

“What Ogyen Trinley Dorje is about in 2015 is something else.”

Allen replies.

“I’m listening.”

I am listening as I prepare breakfast for my friends.

“For instance.”

Jonathan continues.

“Let’s compare what you were about in 1979.”

Jonathan adds.

“To what your son is about today, in 2015, at more or less the same age you were back in the day.”

Sally replies.

“I’ve met Allen’s son, I’m about his age, and he is very much his father’s son.”

Sally adds.

“Perhaps this isn’t the best example.”

Caroline replies.

“Ogyen Trinley Dorje is some random child trafficked as Rangjung Rikpe Dorje’s reincarnation.”

Caroline adds.

“We have to take this into account.”

Caroline pauses.

“The effect this has had to have on him personally to understand what is going on with him today as a young man.”

Breakfast is served.

End scene. Fini.

A teachable moment brought to you by the Naropa Prairie Dog Players for your entertainment pleasure.
